Travel to Tin Can Bay to see the wild dolphins, and have an opportunity to feed them (additional cost of AU$5 per person, to be paid locally). Take a guided walk through Pile Valley with its towering trees, lush green ferns and streams, and continue on to Central Station, a former forestry township. Visit Lake McKenzie, one of 40 crystal-clear lakes, and swim in the blue water or relax on the pure white silica sand.
Enjoy a picnic lunch before traveling to your beach- side hotel at Happy Valley. The afternoon is free; spend it as you wish before meeting up for an authentic 'Aussie' barbecue dinner. Overnight: Happy Valley
Day 2: Fraser Island- Noosa (B,L)
Today, see the colored sands Rainbow Gorge, where the sand has been formed into volcano- like cones. Then experience the natural wonder of Eli Creek, the largest freshwater stream on the eastern coast of Fraser Island. More than 4 million liters of water flow from its mouth into the ocean every hour. Eli Creek is one of Fraser Island's most popular natural wonders. Take a walk along the scenic boardwalks to view the creek, or jump in the water and float down the fast-flowing stream into the mouth of the ocean.
Continue on to the Maheno shipwreck and discover the history of this once-luxurious passenger ship that now lies rusted and buried in the sand. Stop for a picnic lunch in the wilderness before continuing along the beach to the Pinnacles and Coloured Sands. See the multi-hued colored cliffs of the Cathedrals and the stunning panoramic views from Indian Head before returning to Noosa via the spectacular beach highway.
